MTC Learning Coronavirus Precautions
We expect that some learning will take place remotely (online), but we understand that the classroom experience is very important to you and so we hope that you will be able to spend time in our centres too. Hopefully things will change on better regarding Covid 19 situation, but MTC has shown this year how we can adapt and make great things happen, whatever the situation.
We have already undertaken a lot of work to prepare our centres for reopening, and have been successfully teaching our students, in line with Government recommendations, since March 2020.
